2:09am

2:32am
>> good morning, you are watching "fox & friends." i'm heather childers, i'm heather nauert. it is now half past the hour. top five stories making news at this hour. we start with a fox news alert. there has been a deadly shooting at a marine corps
2:33am
base quantico in virginia. now, this is brand new video outside the base, a standoff ending just a short time ago at the marine corps base in quantico. three marines are dead, including the suspected shooter, the gunman shot and killed two marines and then took his own life while barricading himself in a barracks. the gunman is believed to be a staff member at the base. no word on the motive or identities of those who were killed. >> authorities from the state of colorado headed to texas this morning as a parolee lies in a hospital bed on life support. they believe that 24-year-old -- excuse me 28-year-old evan ebil may be linked to the thursday night murder of the colorado prison chief who was shot at his home. he was caught after leading police on a 100 mile-per-hour chase before crashing and then being shot by deputies. he was driving a cadillac that matched the description of the vehicle that seen leaving the neighborhood where tom clements were shot.
2:34am
investigators are trying to figure out if is he linked to the murder of a pizza delivery driver in denver sound. his alleged motive is not yet known. >> that story continues to unravel. >> a texas mom is outraged that her son's school is teaching students that the u.s. is partly to blame for the september 11th terrorist attacks. a terrorist sands posted a picture of the test that her fifth grade son had to take that went with the video that the class had to watch. the most disturbing question why might the u.s. be a target for terrorism. the correct answer according to the school. decisions we made in the u.s. have had negative effects on people elsewhere. the school district defends the curriculum. >> a 9 is 1 tape captures the terrifying moments when burglars broke into a home with a teenage girl inside that house. the 15-year-old telling police that they knocked on the door and then just jumped through an open window. she hid in the closet and then called 911. listen to this.
2:35am
>> don't talk can you tell me you understand but do not open the door? >> you could hear the bad guys at the top of that tape right there. this entire call lasting for 30 minutes. police surrounding that home and then arresting the suspects as they tried to leave the house. how frightening. >> well, you probably knew already, but this story just proving, heather what we know is is true about the united states. we're of course, the greatest nation on earth. new gallup poll shows more people want to leave their country and come here than anywhere else. 138 million people said they would come to the u.s. before another country. the united kingdom was second. followed by canada, france and saudi arabia. chinese people made up the largest number of those looking to live in america. and that is you're 5 at 5:30. >> you can't blame them, right? >> nope. >> it is day three of president obama's first trip to israel since he has become president.
2:36am
he visited official memorial for holocaust victims just a short time ago. doug is following everything. he is live for us in washington with more. hi there, doug. >> good morning. the white house has gone to great lengths to lower expectations for this trip. the president did make news on iran and new push for middle east peace. earlier this morning the president placed a stone at the grave of former israeli prime minister rabin. this has been a trip steeped in symbolism emphasizing u.s. support for israel and offering tough talk about iran's nuclear ambitions. >> as a president i said all options are on the table for achieving our objectives. america will do what we must to prevent a nuclear armed iran. president's stop in israel protest and anger over failure to achieve a middle east peace agreement. the president did call on both israeli and
2:37am
palestinian leaders to return to the negotiating table without preconditions. including that thorny issue of israeli settlements. >> i absolutely believe that it is still possible but i think it is very difficult. if we can get direct negotiations started again i believe that the shape of a potential deal is there. >> saying to the palestinians the ball is in your court. no preconditions. you can start right now and you should. that is a major change in position. at president heads to jordan. shift war in syria. crossing the border into jordan flee to violence there heather. >> doug in washington. thank you so much. now it's time to take a look at who is talking this morning. and bill o'reilly is sounding off. he he is taking issue with what he says is the attack
2:38am
on judeo-christian traditions in america. >> yeah. this really all stems from talking about easter. if you listened to his program you heard that o'reilly has been talking about the war on christmas. but now easter is coming under attack in certain parts of the country. so o'reilly takes a look at that he says this is is part of a larger scale problem in the u.s. listen to this. >> the war on judeo ochristian tradition continues on in some public school districts. in 10 days it will be easter sunday. in some schools you are not allowed to say the word easter. on long island the east meadow school district holding a spring egg hunt, not easter eggs, spring eggs. same thing in prospect highs, illinois. flat rock elementary school in south carolina and a school district in new cumberland, pennsylvania. no easter. they are having spring egg events moderated by a spring bunny. at least in san diego. i know it's stupid. you know it's stupid. but it's happening.
2:39am
and there is a reason why it's happening. secular progressives are running wild with president obama in the white house. they feel unchained, liberated and they are trying to diminish any form of religion. the goal is to marginalize religious opposition to secular programs. >> well, o'reilly went on to say that they can tell children that those symbols are obsolete and unnecessary then that sets the stage for a totally secular society in the future. what the heck is a spring egg anyway? >> i don't know. you call the spring bunny little candy bunny the spring bunny and peeps. >> easter. >> anyway. okay. although easter is right around the corner. it sure doesn't feel like it. that is landing america's favorite groundhog in some hot water this morning. punxsutawney phil may be heading to court for predicting an early spring. it's true. phil the groundhog has been indicted in ohio for the misrepresentation of early spring. an ohio prosecutor says that phil was calculating
2:40am
and predicting spring despite snow and record cold temperatures that followed. >> i think need more to do that? >> okay. well, let's get your first degree weather update with maria molina. >> good morning. eye have a question are they going to start indicting meteorologists. >> you are are a law-abiding citizen though, right? >> i'm a little concerned. here are your cold temperatures for today allegedly. well below average across parts of the midwest, the great lakes. 33 degrees is going to be your high temperature in the city of minneapolis. factor in the breeze and it's going to be feeling even colder than that yet again today, it's friday, enjoy it you do need to bundle up as you head out the door morning. otherwise in san antonio the warm spot 87 degrees high temperature. you could be seeing 90's out across parts of texas throughout the afternoon today. we do have more effect snow across parts of lake erie and lake ontario. you are talking several more inches of snow accumulation possible
2:41am
today. that's in addition to the several inches you have already been picking up over the last couple days out here across parts of the anterior northeast. a brand new storm system developing across parts of the plains. we are seeing that snow already this morning in parts of nebraska, south dakota, north dakota and even as far south as missouri and arkansas. we have a new storm that's developing out west that's going to help increase the snow out here. so there is a winter storm watch in effect across parts of the plains. 6 to 10 inches of snow possible. heather and heather on the southern side of this system, severe weather possible in eastern texas, louisiana, and mississippi. >> marie a thank you so much. >> thanks. >> have a great day now. >> now it's time to entertain this. it's down to the top 8 of season 12 of "american idol." >> so the judges get one say per season and it has to be unanimous. on behalf of the judges, randy, one save for paul
